I am super excited to tell you all that the Montessori Print Shop is giving away their Geometry Bundle here on this blog! This bundle has a $72.74 value! You will find the details on how to enter at the end of this post. I was lucky enough to receive this bundle from the Montessori Print Shop as well to review. The bundle is packed full of materials that are great for Montessori primary, but it is just as packed with materials that are great for lower elementary and I want to show you some of what we are using. This is truly a bundle that will take you from primary through lower elementary. I really wish I had it when the boys started primary. It would have saved me so much work!

I was really excited to receive this bundle because I was in the middle of filling up a new area of our Montessori elementary school room with the appropriate nomenclature and command cards. Above is a picture of how that shelf looks now! The blue bin on the right is stuffed full with nomenclature materials I made with this bundle. Here is a peek at what is inside:
I printed the seven booklets above and bound them using the instructions from the Montessori Print Shop blog post tutorial. Inside they look like this:
from Study of Lines
I also made six sets of three-part cards:
This is an example of what they look like:
This is a closer look at our Geometry Cabinet. This is where I am housing labels for different geometry works in our environment and our COMMAND CARDS! Woohoo! It feels good to get those done! Many of these drawers have materials from other places and I will give you more details on those at a future date. However, it felt SO GOOD to put the Geometric Shapes Command Cards, Geometric Solids Command Cards, and Detective Adjective Command Cards in the drawers! It felt especially good because they actually FIT in the drawers (Most of my other ones don't. You can see the drawers don't close and materials stick out.)
Above are examples of one of the geometric solids and geometric shapes command cards. The Montessori Print Shop also offers some command cards in a worksheet format. I normally shy away from worksheets, but these really are basically command cards with the paper provided.
This giveaway will be open for a full week with opportunities to enter every day. Throughout the week you will have an opportunity to see these materials and MORE from the bundle in action in our homeschool. Kal-El will be starting the detective adjective game this week!
